Google Play Store has launched a set of new features aimed at enhancing the app downloading and updating experience for users with multiple devices. The features include an app sync feature that allows a user’s apps to be automatically downloaded to all their devices. If a user downloads an app on their phone, the same app will be downloaded on their other phone or tablet as long as both devices are using the same Google account.
The Sync apps to devices option can be found in the “Manage applications and devices” menu within Google Play. When activated, the user can access a list of all their devices and choose which devices they want to sync with the apps on their main device. This feature eliminates the need for users to download their apps separately on each device.
Moreover, users can activate the option to sync with smartwatches using Wear OS or smart TVs with Google TV. If a user downloads a specific app on their phone, the store will automatically download the same app on the watch and TV if a compatible version is available for the hardware.
It is important to note that the new feature does not support the synchronization of previously downloaded apps. It only works with downloaded apps after the feature has been activated. However, the store provides an option that allows the user to download the apps of their choice to their other devices through the sync option on their main device. Additionally, the feature does not support the automatic updating of apps on all devices, and the user must manually update their apps on their various devices.
